Lorenzo Alexander does not fit Bills' new defensive scheme
Buffalo Bills outside linebacker Lorenzo Alexander isn't a "system fit" in new head coach Sean McDermott's 4-3 defense, ESPN reporter Mike Rodak doesn't believe.
Alexander is coming off a career year at 33 years old after tallying 12.5 sacks, tying for third-most in the league. He entered 2016 with nine career sacks across his previous 127 games. This was almost certainly an outlier year. A stand-up edge rusher for previous head coach Rex Ryan, Alexander has also never really played with his hand in the dirt as a 4-3 defensive end.
Buffalo's defense slumped to 20th in opponent-adjusted Defensive Passing Net Expected Points per play this year.
